Greetings, Bowhnt123, and welcome. You asked:

My company will match 50 percent, up to 4 percent of my annual income. I am currently depositing 13 percent of my salary, or 9 percent above what they will match. Is it wise to put this money in my 401k? I have heard others at work talking about putting monies in excess of company match into Roth IRAs.I am currently at the 10,500 max per year. Any help would be great.

It all depends on the options in your plan as opposed to what you would do outside of it. For some ideas on what you should evaluate, see my article When Not to Use Your 401(k) Plan at http://www.fool.com/retirement/retireeport/2000/retireeport001023.htm .
